Buffalobob,

Well, it was not supposed to happen that way but it just did. Chucks showed up where they were not supposed to be???

As always, I will take some luck when it falls on my shoulders!!

Re: 6467 yards worth of a Varmint Hunters Grand Slam!!!

Dave,

I want to write up an entire article about Black Sunshine from the dream stage to today and submit it to Varmint Hunters but I do not have any contacts that will print it.

John Antanies who is a contributing editor for The Varmint Hunters magazine contacted me a couple weeks ago and wanted to do an article about the rifle and round and said he would get back in touch but I have yet to hear back from him.

I think I will write up an article and send it into the managing editor and see if I can get them to bite. We will see.

I know I looked a little sour in the first couple pics but I was really trying on that last one [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!! I guess I am a little better at shooting and building rifles then smiling!!!

Thanks for the kind words!!

Awesome shooting Kirby. I've told a couple guys about the 2000+ chuck and they dont believe it. 1 guy said something along the lined that it had to be a 30 cal bullet or bigger, I assured them it was just a wee bigger then a 30 cal bullet. I told them about the round, the bullet, the muzzle velocity, the rifle and I dont really know if they understood any of it to be honest with ya. But all in all, you completed something a lot of people never will. Congratulations once again!

Kirby ,

I to have told some people about ol'black sunshine and they just give me a long look.
You've truly pulled off an amazing feat and i'm sure it ain't over.
Those hangfires that your Dad expierenced are a bummer.

Wow, the whole writeup was excellent. I actually forgot where I was and imagined you and your Dad going after that chuck. Those ranges are simply fantastic, I'd be ecstatic to reach out half that distance [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Thanks for the distraction Kirby, and Congrats!

Kirby,
Good shooting!
Also congratulate your dad for me, he did awesome.
Now, to be honest with you, I'm more impressed with you
almost smiling in that last picture than anything else. You're a good shot, and it's a matter of time before you accomplish what you set out to do, I guess we're all expecting that; but you smiling... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] LOL That's something else!
Good Shooting my friend! You've done well with the shooting and the smiling!!!
